Dublin’s all raging Pillow Queens have just revealed that they have signed to Royal Mountain Records.

To mark this momentous news, the band are sharing the rambunctious “Rats,” alongside a video directed by Michael Maxxis (Orville Peck, City and Colour). Of the filming, much of which was taken from one of the bands sold-out Dublin shows prior to the pandemic, guitarist Pamela Connolly says, “Filming the video for ‘Rats’ was catharsis at its best,” before explaining “After 18 months of no gigs and being inside, we finally got a chance to gather in a venue and simulate a real life gig with some of our closest friends. The chant section towards the end of the song is usually a highlight of our live set and we had really missed that energy so having a chance to recreate that was really special.

Melodic and infectious, but still with that Pillow Queens edge, its another gem in their increasingly influential cannon.

You can watch the video below:

The announcement arrives ahead of the band’s upcoming dates in the UK and Europe which begin in Berlin on September 18th.
